this just happened to me in the #freenet IRC channel at freenode.net (somewhat edited):
toad_1: what can freenet do well already? [18:38]
I can simply go online, upload a file, send the key to a friend and go offline. the friend can then retrieve the file, even though I am already offline without needing a central server. [18:40]
and nobody can eavesdrop.
it might be kinda slow, but it actually makes it easy to publish stuff: via jSite, floghelper and others. [18:42]
floghelper is cool: spam-resistant anonymous blogging without central server
and freereader is, too (even though it needs lots of polish): forward RSS feeds into freenet
you can actually exchange passwords in a safe way via freemail: anonymous email with an intergrated web-interface and imap access.
… I think I should store this conversation somewhere
which I hereby did - I hope you enjoyed this little insight into the #freenet channel :)
And if you grew interested, why not install freenet yourself? It only takes a few clicks via webstart and you’re part of the censorship-resistant web.
toad alias Matthew Toseland is the main developer of freenet. He tends to see more of the remaining challenges and fewer of the achievements than me - which is a pretty good trait for someone who builds a system to which we might have to entrust our basic right of free speech if the worls goes on like this. From a PR perspective it is a pretty horrible trait, though, because he tends to forget to tell people what freenet can already do well :) ↩
